MFB firefighters have attended a fire at a warehouse in Thornbury last night.
Emergency services were called to the property on Mansfield Street shortly before 8pm.
The two-storey concrete tilt-slab constructed office and warehouse complex was smoke logged and firefighters had to ventilate the area before the extent of the fire could be determined.
The blaze was eventually contained to an office on the mezzanine level and firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to other areas of the building.
It took around 45 minutes to bring the fire under control.
Fire investigators will attend today and the cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
A firefighter also suffered a minor facial injury during the incident.
